Nici grew up with a fascination for animals and science, and always knew it was something she wanted to pursue.
She completed my Bachelor of Science, majoring in zoology and evolution and ecology. Nici went on to work for short stints in the public service within the research sector, before returning to university to complete her Honours, examining the impacts of bushfire and logging on beetle biodiversity.
After completing her Honours, Nici worked as a research officer at ANU before commencing her phD, where she studied how native butterfly species interact with farmlands and pine plantations.
Post phD, Nici began to consult organisations in regard to research design, social surveys, and data analysis. She have worked with a range or local and international companies and organisations on a wide array of projects across environmental and social science topics.
She started teaching undergraduate courses during her phD and has a passion for higher education. Nici continues to teach undergraduate and post-graduate students here at the ANU, and supervises research students.
Nici is beginning research examining relationships and roles in households (heteronormative, monogamous) where mothers and fathers switch stereotypical income-earner and care-giver roles.
